How to safely store powerful rare earth magnets? Answered
I have several very powerful rare earth magnets that I use in a physics laboratory to construct DC motors. Accidents happen frequently, especially when taking out and storing the magnets.
Right now I just use some plastic separators in between each one, but even then the magnets tend to fly off and grab onto another, usually taking with them some skin.
I've been thinking of making a box to hold them. Can anyone think of a good design or materials?
PS. Yes, I've asked my class to come up with a method. Nothing great so far :)
